VPN with PPTP to a PIX501 using PPPoE

Does Cisco support vpn'ing with PPTP or L2TP to a Pix connected to the internet with PPPoE?  I have found the exact issue in a post that was 2 years old (q_20499027).  The solution was to use Cisco vpn client with ipsec but I'm wondering if PPTP is supported now.  My research is leading me to believe - no dice.  But I thought I'd check with the experts before configuring other options as I would prefer to use the Windows vpn client.  My client has a Pix501 v 6.3(4).

Thank You!

Cisco VPN client (IPSec) would defintly give you more flexibility and features.

magicomminc,

Thanks for the reply.  For some reason our Ciscco account isn't working as a login to the article you referenced.  Can you provide a copy of the article in text?  If it's too large to post, you could send it to my email address.

Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I appreciate the config, but, it doesn't illustrate how to setup pptp when your pix is connected to the internet via pppoe.  Specifically, when you enter the command "vpdn enable outside" the config errors saying you cannot apply the vpn to the outside interface with pppoe.  (The pix's outside interface is already configured to use pppoe to connect to the internet.)

My fault!
you can NOT have PPTP and PPPoE on the same Interface, period! I don't think it will ever be supported, if you have a PPPoE on the VPN termination interface, IPSec is the only choice. sorry for the confusion.

No problem, that's what I figured.  I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something.  Your answer was relevant to my question and somewhat expected.  Thanks for the reply and you get the points.
